Adv. Alberts is, amongst others, known for his struggles on behalf of Transnet pensioners, the struggle against the Gauteng e-toll system, the successful initialising of the Consumer Commission’s investigation against abuses of the holiday club industry, and the complaint against president Zuma with the Human Rights Commission, regarding his demonising of minorities which are currently being investigated by the Commission.
The FF Plus is currently the third largest party in the Tshwane metro and all indications are that the metro will be governed by a coalition of parties after the election.
